General information about Hkt.net

I am told that Netvigator and Hkt are different divisions of the Hong Kong Telecom group. Connectivity is through Asiaonline which may be innocent.

These are likely the same spammers who have also worked from IBM, HKStar and AsiaOnline.

NetNews Feeds

Hkt receives netnews feeds from the following sites that I know of:

These sites have been added to the reporting list for Hkt to keep them aware of the problem, and to suggest that they terminate their netnews feed with Hkt until such time that Hkt adopts an anti-spam policy and regains control of their servers.

To report spam, contact postmaster@hkt.net
